Over and Out

Well, I guess I have written my last Marathon Mom article. The Monterey Herald has decided to focus on a some new areas and figured interest would wane since I did not make the Olympic Marathon team in January. Probably true. I have enjoyed sharing some of my racing and daily experiences with all of you. I appreciate all of the "good lucks, "go for its," and even the "hang in there!" while I am running, though "slow down" is my favorite. Though my brief stint at writing may be over, I am still planning on running the Olympic Track and Field Trials in June. In 2008 I placed 5th in the 10,000 meters while training for Beijing, so let's see what happens when I get to completely focus on the event. It will be a tough team to make, just like the marathon, but I am not willing to give up on my second Olympic Team just yet. Check out my Athlete Facebook page to see how things unfold.
